its not bad, not too good when compared to say the new camaro ss that has a 6.2 liter, i know thats not much of a comparison but its the first thing that comes to mind.

Welcome!!
That's a nice car man!!

Dude, Why do you need more HP??
170 is good.

And If you have an auto tranny, Adding more Hp is almost useless.
You will need to add some big cash and is not all about hp, You need more torque if you want to use those extra hp to go faster.

i feel incredibly stupid for asking but i have read a few articles on torque but still dont fully understand the concept of it, so can somone just give me a brief statement or explanation of torque and how it differs from horsepower?

dont feel stupid for asking questions. alot of people on here arent sure about things and they want to learn and there are plenty of knowledgeable people on this forum. theres plenty i dont know either. ive learned quite a bit since i joined jettajunkie. alot of great people on here so dont ever feel awkward about asking a question. hell...maybe we should start a thread called the jetta junkie classroom lol. chris (boostaddicted) would certainly be one of the professors lol.

torque is what you feel when you hit the throttle. its what puts you in the back of your seat. its usually a lower rpm pull hence why big rigs have so much torque and no need for much hp.
